DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to warm, 250°.
  • Whisk together all the batter ingredients (eggs through extracts) in a shallow bowl.
  • Dip in each slice of bread for 5-6 seconds per side.
  • Swirl the bread in the batter, but don't soak the bread too long; make sure the outsides are wet but that the bread is not soaked all the way through.
  • Melt 1 tablespoon butter on a griddle; add bread and brown each side until dark golden, about 3 minutes per side.
  • Repeat with remaining slices.
  • Place all the toast on a lightly buttered cookie sheet and place the sheet into a warm oven.
  • Lightly brown 1 tablespoon butter in a separate 9-inch saute pan over high heat.
  • Once the butter is past the foaming stage, add the brown sugar and cook until melted.
  • Use a spoon to break up any sugar lumps.
  • Add the bananas and mix in until coated.
  • Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of the cinnamon sugar over the bananas; cook until the bananas become caramelized and golden brown, but not mushy and overcooked.
  • Be careful to keep the pan steady so that the bananas will caramelize.
  • Garnish the warm French toast with caramelized bananas, toasted pecans, and a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar.
  • May serve with maple butter on the side.
